Milan Day 1 – Milan City

// picture heavy – 26 total!

One thing that brightened up my day as we flew across in the plane was the strawberry yoghurt drink that they served. However, I had hot coffee spill all over me and my white tights soon after ARGH.

Anyway that’s besides the point.
I had the awesomest holiday and here comes the first day summary – which is actually the most mellow, compared to the other day anyway.

The weather was PHEW amazing..super HOT
Felt good sweating and getting skin burnt
Love the smell of sunscreen!

R, K, me

These were the steps leading to the park near the hotel
We stayed somewhere between the Duomo Cathedral and Central Station
We’d hired a car but because parking was probably going to b a problem we left it at the hotel and walked about instead

FOOD

It was SO hard finding a decent place to eat after that!
We walked to sort of a high street..
Dropped by Zara..
and were SO starving to death after.

We walked for AGES and AGES through all these weird streets and lanes.
And found nothing but shops with NO FOOD in it.
Started to think that people in Milan survived on dust!

But thank goodness for Wonderful Cafe (couldn’t have been named better)
It was like finding an oasis in the sahara
A seat on the morning train
A size 6 dress in the sale rack
An old bar of chocolate at the bottom of my handbag. On a Monday. At 4pm after skipping lunch. And breakfast. With no money to buy any food with.

Anyway that’s what it felt like

Needless to say the food was DELICIOUS
Reasonably priced too, a pizza was about 5-6 Euros.
I can never go back to normal pizza again.

Wanted donuts from this stall later on
But at 2.50 Euros for a PLAIN donut, no thanks!

Gelati, vespas, sun dresses and huge asses? Sounds delightful! These pictures were adorable.

I know what you mean about loving the smell of sunscreen. The smell of sunscreen brings a wave of nostalgia- sunscreen reminds me of all the lazy days spent at the beach or the park.
